We’re seriously taken with Helen James? new?Considered range for Dunnes Stores …

Not only does the new line include have-to-have cookware, but it also offers up edible treats – such as a scrumptious range of unusually delectable chocolate bars (pistachio and ginger, bergamot and hazelnut, rose and peppercorn). Make them into spicy, aromatic brownies for that extra OMG factor (?3.50 at?Dunnes Stores).

Chocolate brownies with bergamot and hazelnut chunks (Makes 28)

YOU WILL NEED

  • 300g butter
  • 3 bars Considered milk chocolate (80g each)
  • 5 medium eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 160g plain flour
  • 40g cocoa
  • 1 tsp sea salt flakes, lightly crushed
  • 1 bar Considered Bergamot & Hazelnut chocolate

METHOD

  1. Preheat oven to 180C/350F/gas mark 4.
  2. Line your baking tray with parchment paper.
  3. Melt your butter and milk chocolate in a bowl over a pan of simmering water.
  4. In a separate bowl, beat your eggs, vanilla and sugar until thick and glossy, and coating the back of a spoon.
  5. When the chocolate is melted, remove from heat and slowly add to egg mixture, beating all the time.
  6. Sift together your flour and cocoa, and add the salt flakes.
  7. Add the cocoa-flour mixture to dry mix and beat until smooth.
  8. Break up your Bergamot & Hazelnut bar into chunks and stir into the brownie batter.
  9. Pour your mixture into a pan (34x23cm/13×9″) and spread out evenly.
  10. Bake in the centre of the oven for 20 minutes.
  11. When ready, the centre should be gooey but not wobble, and there should be a light brown crust that is just starting to crack
  12. Remove from the oven and leave to cool in the pan for 20 minutes.
  13. Cut into 28 even squares.
